Dusk - An Epic Science Fiction adventure

In the year 2500, humanity has become so technologically advanced that overpopulation has led to an Earth too arrogant to acknowledge its own failures. With the Earth overpopulated and polluted, a group of twenty premier scientists must depart on a mission to explore Asha—a distant, uninhabited planet that may offer solutions to humanity’s burgeoning problems.

But when they arrive at Asha, the scientists are brusquely greeted by a mysterious human military force that imprisons them with no explanation. They find that during their journey, a faster ship not only delivered humans to Asha, but those humans defeated Earth in an interplanetary civil war. With this war and the discovery of an inexplicable link to mankind’s past, the team finds Asha holds more mysteries than answers.

Astrophysicist Cyrus Chamberlain is among those who left behind their old lives and risked everything on this journey. Unfortunately for Dr. Chamberlain, he finds that even if he survives the many challenges this new world holds for him, he may have already lost more than he ever imagined.

Dusk is available on Kindle here:

http://www.amazon.com/Dusk-ebook/dp/...2776673&sr=8-2

And in hardcover and softcover as well.

There is a free audiobook podcast as well as an excerpt of the first five chapters available through:

Hope you enjoy!

Sounds very interesting and unique. Too bad its not on smashwords or in an epub version somewhere. Good luck with your book. The description sounds great.

I agree. It needs to be on Smashwords so that us ebookers who don't own a Kindle can buy and read the book.

Hi Messatsu, your link above is a bit problematic.

This one should work

Also, if there is a demand for it, I can have a version specifically for SONY Reader and several other devices produced and posted fairly quickly.

I have to be honest Messatsu, you have priced your ebook a bit on the high side. (the hardback and paperback are on the insanely high side).

Dusk could be the best thing since sliced bread, but I am not sure I am ever going to know.

Good luck though!

On Amazon the price for me is $10.59... Way too high a price for an ebook by an unknown author with no reviews...

In the US these are the prices at Amazon


Kindle Edition
$8.59

Hardcover
$37.95

Paperback
$25.15


Like I said, it may be a great book, but at these prices I doubt many people will ever know.

I went to the site and looked around and didn't see an epub version. I seen the Barnes and Noble link was that it? The price was 25+ which didn't seem right. So not sure.

I believe this is the ePub adobe digital edition DRM

But again, at these prices, I am not clicking anything.

The price for the ePub version is $6.29 plus tax. It is purchasable from the site itself. There is a purchase button on the "Buy Now" page.

Trust me, I don't have any control over the price of the physical copies, and if I did, it would not be that much. The eBook I do have control over, and your feedback has been taken into account and is appreciated.
